Day two of closely reading the "Gettysburg Address" asks students to look deeper into the emotional appeal that Lincoln uses to persuade his audience. Students will examine his choice of personal and possessive pronouns, as well as the connotative influence of the words “fathers” and “conceived”, in addition to citing specific evidence from paragraphs one and three to support their thoughts. Special Materials: Copies of the anchor text for all students Student guided notes sheet Highlighters (optional)
